Plant Care Guide

Bright Indirect Light


Kalanchoes respond best to bright, indirect light. Harsh direct sunlight can prevent blooming but if your plant looks leggy and is too tall then it does not have enough light.

Infrequent Watering


Our kalanchoe is an ideal choice for those who tend to forget to water their plants. This resilient plant thrives on minimal water, needing it only every few weeks, especially less in the winter. We recommend allowing the soil to completely dry between waterings to help prevent root rot. Since Kalanchoes are a succulent, the leaves can store water and the plant remains unaffected even if watering is delayed by a few days.



In contrast to our other succulent offerings, kalanchoe plants flourish when repotted regularly. Repotting is recommended to occur annually during the fall, post-blooming, to foster new growth and enhance the plant's density. Gradually upgrade the container size with each repotting for best growth. When repotting choose a well-draining pot with an acidic loose loamy, sandy, well-draining soil used for succulents or a cactus mix.

Low Humidity


Kalanchoes are relatively undemanding regarding your home environment, unlike some indoor plants. It flourishes with temperatures of 55° to 80° degrees Fahrenheit. If they are protected from frost, minimal effort is required to maintain a comfortable environment. Kalanchoe plants are not sensitive to humidity.
